Explore the Thin line in everything, don’t try to understand everything from your knowledge or emotions.
Being in the flow, trusting yourself, believing in yourself, and being the master of yourself are all reminders that walk a fine line.
For example, “going with the flow” can be misunderstood as just doing whatever you like and keeping going.
When you are uncomfortable, trusting yourself can be misunderstood.
Trust yourself to be in your comfort zone.
You are the master of yourself.
When you handle conflict with anyone’s suggestions as rules, you will ignore them because you believe you are the master of yourself and you know what to do next.
Yes, you know what to do in your life, but you also don’t know what to do.
Self ( I ) and consciousness (whole)
When you can filter “I” and become whole, then you can be a master of yourself.
You can’t see reality as it is through your emotions or clinginess.
I’m overwhelmed by emotions, attachments, and clinging.
When you are clinging to your personal wants, how can you be a master of yourself?
Any decision made from a place of comfort and attachment will prevent the ultimate expansion of your consciousness and experience of wholeness and oneness.
Going with the flow means,
Dropping your personalization and ego,
Letting things unfold, and letting them reveal your divine potential.
Ultimately, going with the flow will help you break down your Ego and unleash your potential. Going with the flow doesn’t mean going with your every lust and like or that you lack command over the flow.
For example, you and your friends went to a forest for meditation, and it made sense to you, which is why you said yes.
But later in the forest, your friends give more priority to other forms of entertainment than meditation. So, what will you do now so you can go with the flow and be part of their entertainment?
The entertainment went a bit further when they started using drugs to meditate, so you will go with the flow and have drugs with them?
Like this, it’s a thin line. Go with the flow, but drive the flow in the right direction. Because flow means it can go in any direction, towards slavery or liberation,
When anything allows your liberation and the unfolding of your divine potential, that is the right direction. If anything, it puts you into dependency and slavery, which is the wrong direction of flow.
Your consciousness and wisdom must monitor the flow.
Trust and believe in yourself!
How do you know you are trusting yourself beyond your wants?
It’s again a thin line.
A person can’t trust himself until he can distinguish between
His wants and needs
His intentions and intuitions,
His feelings and inner guidance,
and his career, and purpose.
To trust yourself, you must have deeper honesty with yourself and be transparent with everything. The more you are transparent, the better you can trust yourself.
Otherwise, in the name of trusting yourself, you may become ignorant and miss many connection dots to improve wisdom.
Let your self-awareness improve so you can trust yourself effortlessly beyond your wants.
All the spiritual reminders do not make you a limited being or a follower of someone.
But it constantly lets you step out of your comfort zones and work with your ego and personalization, which inspires you towards liberation and enlightenment.
When we touch on these points, there will be another question:
Then creating healthy boundaries for my spiritual practice, isn’t it personalization?
Is it a comfort zone to establish healthy boundaries?
You can see how a thin line it is to venture out.
Spirituality says you must be disciplined, but it also says you must be free and allow your free will. That’s contradictory, isn’t it?
Healthy boundaries mean you don’t let some physical and temporary things consume your valuable time. You can create healthy boundaries to keep your focus on your deep practices.
And also ask how I know whether to personalize or manage my time when creating priorities.
In spiritual practice, personalization means attachments and clinging to wants.
Being objective to anything that helps you grow into self-purification and enlightenment is self-responsibility.
So, self-responsibility and personalization both look the same but are not the same.
There are many things that always look the same but not the same.
That’s why find the thin line and subtle connections and differences in everything. You will never feel the conflict between free will and spiritual discipline.
